Consultant (System migration, security & modernisation)

Designing an coaching internal & off-shore Fujitsu team as well as the Munich-RE US counterpart, for:

  • Decommissioning legacyHP-SA configuration management and porting into a modern modular configuration management system.
  • Designing an automated migration into modern infrastructure and configuration management instead of manual server migration.
  • There were hundreds of server in Germany and US that had to be migrated and I've isolated the migration to smaller segments and grew it exponentially after every successful attempt.
  • Upgrading configuration management system from a Legacy HP-SA.
  • Predominantly the target systems were Redhat & Cent-OS Linux so I chose a Redhat Satellite 6.2, mixed with CHEF configuration management in order to also be able to support some Microsoft systems for:
  • Subscription Management, Content Management, Errata Management, Configuring Hosts, Managing Containers, Remote Execution.
  • Some of the configuration on the legacy system5 and 6 were not available on the Satellite 6.2, so I created a tool to extract that information separately and apply it to a git repository.
  • This git repo along with CHEF autorun, was used for recreation of the older systems for updating the configuration and applying it into group of servers.
  • On the other hand there were special cases such as HPSA Policies, for this purpose I created a separate CHEF cookbooks & recipes and compiled RPM?s to apply special configuration policies.
  • Replicating and provision the systems on AWS.
  • Designing on premise Redhat Satellite for proof of concept to be able to replicate and apply the services into AWS cloud.
  • Creating proof on concepts for dockerisation and implementation of minikube and kubernetes for applications and introducing the Terraform for a more cloud agnostic provisioning

Engineering foundation

  • During my career development, my main focus has become fundamentally UNIX / Linux systems. (SystemV, Berkeley, POSIX, Ansi C ), TCP/IP (network protocol/internet protocol), Shell programming (Bash, Korn, C Shell (awk, sed, grep,regex)) and PERL (scripting/programming) for system, network and data manipulation.

  • The specific UNIX types that I further specialise are:

    • Linux distro, specifically Linux Red Hat. I got involved with linux since kernel one at it's scientific stages and through out its evolving into a commercially reliable product mainly on 8086 chip-set family and Powerpc.

    • IBM RS-6000?s and P-Series (SMIT, NIM,WLM, LPAR, Virtualisation, VIO Micropartitioning, WPAR) AIX

  • For automation, system performance analysis and security implementation with applied scripting knowledge in SHELL and PERL.

  • I continue to use Python and Shell as my main strength for scripting and programming languages for operating system, database (alongside with SQL) and network development; amendment and automating amongst other helper scripting languages such as Java script, Golang & Ruby.

  • Having C as my main strength for system programming, I fall back on this skill for deeper system trouble shooting when necessary.

  • I have also been involved with many Relational Databases in general such as Oracle, Ingres, Postgres, Mysql from administration installation to data analysis or database programming using SQL, PERL, SHELL and for more extensive programming, using PERL/DBI and embedded C.


History

  • In 1990, After graduating my high school diploma with concentration on math, physics and computer studies from Terrigal high school in Australia, I?ve entered University of Newcastle Callaghan, Australia studying General computer science with interest in Operating systems and algorithmic problem solving.

  • In 1993 I received a sponsorship from Tandy electronics to expand my knowledge in business side of technology by getting certified in electronics retail sales management stages one and two, whilst working; instead of pursuing my degree.

  • In 1995 having my experience in 8086 chip-set and msdos from Tandy, alongside the business exposure and other electronic products in Australia and then UK, I started a job working for Apple UK concentrating on 68000 chip-set and the new PowerPc computers, Apple-OS, application, network support for household and small business customers. Meanwhile I was certified as Apple OS specialist and C programming language, Alongside my growing knowledge in Linux operating system.

  • During 1995-96, I started working for Bytel, a Telecommunication software house as Support engineer. I proceeded to be a senior consultant and on site trainer for clients, for the main product; subscriber management system. During this work I was sponsored to be certified in Relational database administration and SQL programming and Embedded SQL programming in CA-Ingres and Operating system user, administration and programming in VAX/VMS and DCL. Later it was decided to migrate the systems for more modern architecture. The Operating system of choice had become to be Unix and the RDB of choice Oracle.

  • I?ve attended administration courses for Unix and Oracle for the major migration. By October 96 I?ve transferred my knowledge of DCL scripting and VMS operating system support to Shell scripting and UNIX administration alongside with SQL interactive update and Embedded SQL programming encapsulated by shell scripts instead of DCL scripts.

  • Since then I?ve been concentrating on UNIX as my main specialty for network, database, storage and other aspects of IT. Published: 2000


Progression

  • As an IT consultant, I have been involved in projects from many technical and tactical perspectives. To elaborate, the tactical consultation can be described as helping the project from the time management, budget, resources and team leadership. Technical consultation can be described as the services that fulfilled the need for the project practicality, integration, compatibility and helping with the communication amongst the multiple business parties whom involved in project.

  • I mainly specialise in Unix systems and its main universal network protocol TCP/IP that have been evidently taking over the IT industry and internet communication from many aspects, with lot more success compared to the rivals. UNIX was once written in assembly language but it was gradually ported and reconstructed in C language which is amongst the fundamentals of my skills. I also have mastered the Shell scripting for system administration related necessities of the Unix operating system. Gradually I've advanced also to Perl programming for having more versatility amongst other operating systems and databases and it's syntax conformity with Shell, C, C++ code while a lot more flexible array handling not to mention it's powerful network and internet construction and amendment ability.

  • Unix has been produced by different vendors such as IBM AIX, HP UX, Sun Solaris and later on ported originally as a scientific project in Linux until it was commercialized due to it's free source code philosophy that is these days also produced by many different vendors, Redhat and SUSE being one of the top commercially supported amongst the other derivations such as Ubuntu, Debian, Slackware, QNX etc.

  • I rather catagorise UNIX by the standards of SystemV, Berkeley, ANSI C and POSIX that it has matured in, since the standards are getting more and more integrated and that allows one to correlate and track different derivation of the UNIX independent of it's vendors proprietary standards . APPLE has also taken part in action by introducing OSX which it fundamentally built on Berkeley. There is no doubt that with the modern technologies such as volume manager, file systems and particularly in "virtualisation" there would be tools that would be specific to the operating systems brand. But the concept of utilisation remains fairly uniform.

  • I've started off my IT career with one of the well known operating systems of the past, VMS and Ingres relational database in 1994. After a year, I proceeded my career by moving on to Unix as operating system and RDB databases such as Oracle, Ingres, MYSQL and POSTGRES etc. During my IT career I have had lots of experience with other minor platforms such as Microsoft products in some heterogeneous systems.

  • Nevertheless, I keep my concentration on Unix systems and expanding my knowledge on integrating these skills into web business, since pure structural coding is the skill of the past and it is now more important to be able to jockey the existing codes and porting them into modern frame works and modularity.


Experience

Diconium

  • I was a consultant at Diconium Stuttgart Germany for B2B support of multiple architectural variation of e-commerce on complex heterogeneous Web services for Daimler, Edeka, Footlocker, Aventics, Kodak and Haefler.

  • My focus was Analysis, Fault repair, architectural and operational documentation, scripting and automation as well as migrating LAMP model or proprietary JAVA applications into modern containers & Cloud technologies.

  • I confronted some challenges on Docker for port-mapping to outside "public IP" as well as the IPC problems due to CPU architecture or quantity or lack of CPU power on local and on premise machines. I also implemented Docker and "Docker swarms" but eventually to move to mini-cube at the end most of the customers preferred Docker and Kubernetes services on AWS ECS and EKS services for ease of use.

  • I also started a proof of concept for Terraform for cloud agnostic provisioning solution.

  • I ran workshops for the SME's on AWS & Google cloud as well as Docker and Kubernetes. Meanwhile I created youtube videos for the technicians, for later reviews and practical tests.

  • The main focus of training was deployment into cloud while supporting ongoing hybrid, especially for Daimler Benz as the largest customer.


Munich-RE

  • At Munich-Re an insurance company in Munich, Germany I was Designing an automated migration into modern infrastructure and configuration management instead of manual server migration.

  • There were hundreds of server in Germany and US that had to be migrated and I've isolated the migration to smaller segments and grew it exponentially after every successful attempt.

  • We had to modernise configuration management system from a Legacy HPSA.

  • Predominantly the target systems were Cent-OS Linux so I chose a Redhat Satellite 6.0, mixture with CHEF configuration management in order to also be able to support some Microsoft systems.

  • At the same time there were three versions of Cent-OS 5,6 & 7 which made is slightly more complex.

  • Some of the configuration on the legacy system5 and 6 were not available on the Satellite 6.2, so I created a tool to extract that information separately and apply it to a git repository.

  • This git repo along with CHEF autorun, was used for recreation of the older systems for updating the configuration and applying it into group of servers.

  • On the other hand there were special cases such as HPSA Policies, for this purpose I created a separate CHEF cookbooks & recipes and compiled RPM?s to apply special configuration policies.

  • The next level was to replicate and provision the systems on AWS or Azure. I recommended AWS as majority of the systems were Linux based and we had many problems deploying them on Microsoft Azure.

  • I created proof on concepts for dockerisation and implementation of minikube and kubernetes for applications and introducing the Terraform for a more cloud agnostic provisioning.


AXA

  • We were developing a product called Wayguard which was an application that was running on Android and IOS to locate family and inform Police when they are in trouble and to know their last position at the time of the incident.

  • The back-end system was a sophisticated system running on AWS that was connecting to cellular services and Bosch alarm services that was connected to Koeln Police department.

  • Apart from the CI and CD the live system on the AWS was consisting of developing on: EC2, EBS, S3, Cloudfront, RDS, Elasticache, ELB, WAF, VPC, Route 56 and at the end implementation of autoscaling. as well as docker for the test environments.


Problem one

  • I cut down SSL certificate costs by introducing wild cards in subject alternative name for multiple subdomains but this caused the whole connections to go down somewhere in AWS.

  • After chasing it up with AWS support and not being able to rectify the problem, I found a work around by changing the service name ?TCP or UDP? to port number on the ?Elastic load balancer? that it ended up working.


Problem two

  • We were using WAF for Cloudfront and our product communications were not going through.

  • I?ve found out that the problems was due to WAF not supporting Websockets protocol that we used for communication on some parts of the product.

  • Using Nginx as a reverse proxy, I separated the normal communication from web-socket communication and implemented protocol level firewall on websocket channel, compiling a custom made ?Mod-security? module on Nginix.


Riplife

  • In Spain Malaga I started a project with gaming company called Riplife, indirectly owned by Calvin Ayre.

  • Since Chinese government has strong censorship, I had to find a way to stop them from tracing servers or shutting down the gaming services.

  • Using a star topology on Spacewalk proxies, I distributed the servers so it couldn?t be traced back and divided them amongst multiple ISP?s connecting from Taiwan.

  • When a server was attacked the whole servers connected to that proxy would shutdown and there was not trace back to other branches due to strong protocol obfuscation.

  • Then another proxy was activated and software were applied through Spacewalk channels.


VolksWagen

Persuading, Audi, Skoda & Porsche into unified CAD Software & datapipelines for communication into the very complex IT infrastructure.


Nokia

When autoscaler wasn?t available I created automatic solution for scaling servers and to use LVM and assign EBS storage upon need and remove them when not needed, for saving costs.

Engineering foundation

  • During my career development, my main focus has become fundamentally UNIX / Linux systems. (SystemV, Berkeley, POSIX, Ansi C ), TCP/IP (network protocol/internet protocol), Shell programming (Bash, Korn, C Shell (awk, sed, grep,regex)) and PERL (scripting/programming) for system, network and data manipulation.

  • The specific UNIX types that I further specialise are:

    • Linux distro, specifically Linux Red Hat. I got involved with linux since kernel one at it's scientific stages and through out its evolving into a commercially reliable product mainly on 8086 chip-set family and Powerpc.

    • IBM RS-6000?s and P-Series (SMIT, NIM,WLM, LPAR, Virtualisation, VIO Micropartitioning, WPAR) AIX

  • For automation, system performance analysis and security implementation with applied scripting knowledge in SHELL and PERL.

  • I continue to use Python and Shell as my main strength for scripting and programming languages for operating system, database (alongside with SQL) and network development; amendment and automating amongst other helper scripting languages such as Java script, Golang & Ruby.

  • Having C as my main strength for system programming, I fall back on this skill for deeper system trouble shooting when necessary.

  • I have also been involved with many Relational Databases in general such as Oracle, Ingres, Postgres, Mysql from administration installation to data analysis or database programming using SQL, PERL, SHELL and for more extensive programming, using PERL/DBI and embedded C.


History

  • In 1990, After graduating my high school diploma with concentration on math, physics and computer studies from Terrigal high school in Australia, I?ve entered University of Newcastle Callaghan, Australia studying General computer science with interest in Operating systems and algorithmic problem solving.

  • In 1993 I received a sponsorship from Tandy electronics to expand my knowledge in business side of technology by getting certified in electronics retail sales management stages one and two, whilst working; instead of pursuing my degree.

  • In 1995 having my experience in 8086 chip-set and msdos from Tandy, alongside the business exposure and other electronic products in Australia and then UK, I started a job working for Apple UK concentrating on 68000 chip-set and the new PowerPc computers, Apple-OS, application, network support for household and small business customers. Meanwhile I was certified as Apple OS specialist and C programming language, Alongside my growing knowledge in Linux operating system.

  • During 1995-96, I started working for Bytel, a Telecommunication software house as Support engineer. I proceeded to be a senior consultant and on site trainer for clients, for the main product; subscriber management system. During this work I was sponsored to be certified in Relational database administration and SQL programming and Embedded SQL programming in CA-Ingres and Operating system user, administration and programming in VAX/VMS and DCL. Later it was decided to migrate the systems for more modern architecture. The Operating system of choice had become to be Unix and the RDB of choice Oracle.

  • I?ve attended administration courses for Unix and Oracle for the major migration. By October 96 I?ve transferred my knowledge of DCL scripting and VMS operating system support to Shell scripting and UNIX administration alongside with SQL interactive update and Embedded SQL programming encapsulated by shell scripts instead of DCL scripts.

  • Since then I?ve been concentrating on UNIX as my main specialty for network, database, storage and other aspects of IT. Published: 2000


Progression

  • As an IT consultant, I have been involved in projects from many technical and tactical perspectives. To elaborate, the tactical consultation can be described as helping the project from the time management, budget, resources and team leadership. Technical consultation can be described as the services that fulfilled the need for the project practicality, integration, compatibility and helping with the communication amongst the multiple business parties whom involved in project.

  • I mainly specialise in Unix systems and its main universal network protocol TCP/IP that have been evidently taking over the IT industry and internet communication from many aspects, with lot more success compared to the rivals. UNIX was once written in assembly language but it was gradually ported and reconstructed in C language which is amongst the fundamentals of my skills. I also have mastered the Shell scripting for system administration related necessities of the Unix operating system. Gradually I've advanced also to Perl programming for having more versatility amongst other operating systems and databases and it's syntax conformity with Shell, C, C++ code while a lot more flexible array handling not to mention it's powerful network and internet construction and amendment ability.

  • Unix has been produced by different vendors such as IBM AIX, HP UX, Sun Solaris and later on ported originally as a scientific project in Linux until it was commercialized due to it's free source code philosophy that is these days also produced by many different vendors, Redhat and SUSE being one of the top commercially supported amongst the other derivations such as Ubuntu, Debian, Slackware, QNX etc.

  • I rather catagorise UNIX by the standards of SystemV, Berkeley, ANSI C and POSIX that it has matured in, since the standards are getting more and more integrated and that allows one to correlate and track different derivation of the UNIX independent of it's vendors proprietary standards . APPLE has also taken part in action by introducing OSX which it fundamentally built on Berkeley. There is no doubt that with the modern technologies such as volume manager, file systems and particularly in "virtualisation" there would be tools that would be specific to the operating systems brand. But the concept of utilisation remains fairly uniform.

  • I've started off my IT career with one of the well known operating systems of the past, VMS and Ingres relational database in 1994. After a year, I proceeded my career by moving on to Unix as operating system and RDB databases such as Oracle, Ingres, MYSQL and POSTGRES etc. During my IT career I have had lots of experience with other minor platforms such as Microsoft products in some heterogeneous systems.

  • Nevertheless, I keep my concentration on Unix systems and expanding my knowledge on integrating these skills into web business, since pure structural coding is the skill of the past and it is now more important to be able to jockey the existing codes and porting them into modern frame works and modularity.


Experience

Diconium

  • I was a consultant at Diconium Stuttgart Germany for B2B support of multiple architectural variation of e-commerce on complex heterogeneous Web services for Daimler, Edeka, Footlocker, Aventics, Kodak and Haefler.

  • My focus was Analysis, Fault repair, architectural and operational documentation, scripting and automation as well as migrating LAMP model or proprietary JAVA applications into modern containers & Cloud technologies.

  • I confronted some challenges on Docker for port-mapping to outside "public IP" as well as the IPC problems due to CPU architecture or quantity or lack of CPU power on local and on premise machines. I also implemented Docker and "Docker swarms" but eventually to move to mini-cube at the end most of the customers preferred Docker and Kubernetes services on AWS ECS and EKS services for ease of use.

  • I also started a proof of concept for Terraform for cloud agnostic provisioning solution.

  • I ran workshops for the SME's on AWS & Google cloud as well as Docker and Kubernetes. Meanwhile I created youtube videos for the technicians, for later reviews and practical tests.

  • The main focus of training was deployment into cloud while supporting ongoing hybrid, especially for Daimler Benz as the largest customer.


Munich-RE

  • At Munich-Re an insurance company in Munich, Germany I was Designing an automated migration into modern infrastructure and configuration management instead of manual server migration.

  • There were hundreds of server in Germany and US that had to be migrated and I've isolated the migration to smaller segments and grew it exponentially after every successful attempt.

  • We had to modernise configuration management system from a Legacy HPSA.

  • Predominantly the target systems were Cent-OS Linux so I chose a Redhat Satellite 6.0, mixture with CHEF configuration management in order to also be able to support some Microsoft systems.

  • At the same time there were three versions of Cent-OS 5,6 & 7 which made is slightly more complex.

  • Some of the configuration on the legacy system5 and 6 were not available on the Satellite 6.2, so I created a tool to extract that information separately and apply it to a git repository.

  • This git repo along with CHEF autorun, was used for recreation of the older systems for updating the configuration and applying it into group of servers.

  • On the other hand there were special cases such as HPSA Policies, for this purpose I created a separate CHEF cookbooks & recipes and compiled RPM?s to apply special configuration policies.

  • The next level was to replicate and provision the systems on AWS or Azure. I recommended AWS as majority of the systems were Linux based and we had many problems deploying them on Microsoft Azure.

  • I created proof on concepts for dockerisation and implementation of minikube and kubernetes for applications and introducing the Terraform for a more cloud agnostic provisioning.


AXA

  • We were developing a product called Wayguard which was an application that was running on Android and IOS to locate family and inform Police when they are in trouble and to know their last position at the time of the incident.

  • The back-end system was a sophisticated system running on AWS that was connecting to cellular services and Bosch alarm services that was connected to Koeln Police department.

  • Apart from the CI and CD the live system on the AWS was consisting of developing on: EC2, EBS, S3, Cloudfront, RDS, Elasticache, ELB, WAF, VPC, Route 56 and at the end implementation of autoscaling. as well as docker for the test environments.


Problem one

  • I cut down SSL certificate costs by introducing wild cards in subject alternative name for multiple subdomains but this caused the whole connections to go down somewhere in AWS.

  • After chasing it up with AWS support and not being able to rectify the problem, I found a work around by changing the service name ?TCP or UDP? to port number on the ?Elastic load balancer? that it ended up working.


Problem two

  • We were using WAF for Cloudfront and our product communications were not going through.

  • I?ve found out that the problems was due to WAF not supporting Websockets protocol that we used for communication on some parts of the product.

  • Using Nginx as a reverse proxy, I separated the normal communication from web-socket communication and implemented protocol level firewall on websocket channel, compiling a custom made ?Mod-security? module on Nginix.


Riplife

  • In Spain Malaga I started a project with gaming company called Riplife, indirectly owned by Calvin Ayre.

  • Since Chinese government has strong censorship, I had to find a way to stop them from tracing servers or shutting down the gaming services.

  • Using a star topology on Spacewalk proxies, I distributed the servers so it couldn?t be traced back and divided them amongst multiple ISP?s connecting from Taiwan.

  • When a server was attacked the whole servers connected to that proxy would shutdown and there was not trace back to other branches due to strong protocol obfuscation.

  • Then another proxy was activated and software were applied through Spacewalk channels.


VolksWagen

Persuading, Audi, Skoda & Porsche into unified CAD Software & datapipelines for communication into the very complex IT infrastructure.


Nokia

When autoscaler wasn?t available I created automatic solution for scaling servers and to use LVM and assign EBS storage upon need and remove them when not needed, for saving costs.
